My Breast cancer help

$2,885 of $5,000 goal

Created May 30, 2018
ALL INFORMATION IS VERIFIABLE unless in violation of HIPAA regulations.. Hi all. This is hard. I'm raising a teenager on my own. 5 days after my 44th birthday, I learned I had breast cancer. It's early stage, but I need extensive surgery. I have pets to care for who are my therapy, a son who is brilliant and really wants to college, and before surgery I'm losing money fast. I'm going to lose half my salary at the least. I feel like I'm failing my son. I need to go out already on disability but the financial stress is wearing me. I'm fighting with myself to stay alive and be broke or just give up. My son, my pets. My world!
